Have you by any chance installed any version of samba via apt-get etc?
samba-tool should be in /usr/local/samba/bin/
If you have any samba3 components installed ( samba, samba-common etc), 
remove them and then run the following two commands:

echo "PATH=\$PATH:/usr/local/samba/bin:/usr/local/samba/sbin" > 
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/samba/bin:/usr/local/samba/sbin

This will set the path up to all the Samba 4 tools.
